Carol Milne

When describing the tactile elements of knits, words evoking softness, drape, and coziness come to mind.Β  Artist Carol Milne has created works that have us re-considering that notion of knitting.Β  Her pieces showcase knitting, but with glass as the medium.

Milne has come up with a revolutionary method of glass-making to create the base sculpture.

She then painstakingly chips away at the piece to create the final artwork.Β  Therefore, all the yarn loops and textures have been sculpted by hand afterwards.

Phat Knits

I love a cozy chunky knit sweater, and they seem like a trend that is here to stay.Β  Thicker yarns create much texture and dimension, but Rotterdam-based artist Bauke Knottnerus has taken it to another level.

The threads are knit together using large scale needles operated by two people.

These works are often in cartoon-like proportions and set up in interior spaces.

More of Knottnerus’ work can be seen on his official site.
